Our Mission

UKSCN was set up by a small group of volunteers that were inspired by the powerful and direct protests made by young people against climate inaction across the rest of Europe. In particular, young climate activist Greta Thunberg’s speeches and ideas are central to our mission. This involves radically reforming the role and power of young people in national action against climate change. To achieve this we will employ strong and repeated student-led protest to promote our diverse voices calling for a common aim. With 200 species going extinct every day and water scarcity affecting up to 360 million people, our objectives have never been more relevant.


20th September: UK Strike

We will rise up and take direct action where older generations have failed. We are already facing devastating and irreversible impacts around the world. This is our final chance to fight for the future, and age will not stop us. On 15th February 2019, more than 10,000 students across the UK went on strike to protest lack of government action to combat our climate crisis. On 15th March,  50,000 participated. Join us on the 20th September 2019, to amplify our voices once again.
